Following graduation from Manchester University where she studied German, Philippa began her corporate sales career at Cadbury’s before moving on to a National Account Manager role at Paramount Pictures. A further move saw her gravitate towards Marketing at Warner Brothers.
Whilst at Paramount she took a sabbatical enabling her to compete in the 2005/6 Clipper Ventures Round the World Yacht Race. This prompted a change of career path resulting in a move to the south coast.
